Arby's was located near Shopko for years. A school was torn down (long story), part of the lot was used for Arby's new location. Their old building was remodeled into a car dealership. Pity that they could've had 2 Arby's here. The other part of the lot had a different building put up, which had Movie Gallery, that closed down later on.

Burger King & one of the McDonald's was torn down and rebuilt. The other McDonald's was remodeled, but not rebuilt. Taco Johns remodeled adding on more roof and an extended eating area. Taco Bell used to be next to Burger King (No joke). They have since moved out near Menards. Their old building was used for Papa Johns. Not sure if they still that building today. Little Caeser's took over an old casino building. Their previous place from years back is now a car dealer lot. One of the Subways moved into an old pet store after remodeling it. Yes, they needed the extra space the pet store had at the time. Godfather's closed after almost 20 years, their building was torn down and an office building went up. 2nd Subway moved into the main floor, moved from a previous location. Godfather's later returned as a pickup/carry out place next to a gas station, which used to have a couple garages for washing your car in. Pizza Hut closed both of their locations and moved out by the Lakewood Mall and built a new building. Their old buildings was remodeled to remove the Pizza Hut design. One of them became another fast food place, the other is a flower shop. Wendy's added on additional seating, but the building hasn't changed much. Steak & Buffet closed and the building was used for a pawn shop (in the back), audiologist (in the front on the right). RG's Family restaurant became IHOP and remodeled. Aunt Chilota's closed down after so many years, the lot is now used by a small coffee shop. Located next to a gas station, that was remodeled since they no longer worked on cars. Maverick's built a new building next to Target. Their old building is currently being remodeled for another food place. Hong Kong restaurant was closed for reasons unknown, but has since been remodeled as an Asian food place. Some employees went to work at Stir Fry 88 out at the mall. Hardee's became Carl's Jr. Building wasn't remodeled. KFC moved out by Menards and became KFC/Long John Silvers. Their old location was remodeled into a non food place. Thatzza Pizza stayed in the same 2 locations for years and they haven't remodeled either. 3rd Subway moved to the mall replacing Grandma's Deli, which had closed down months prior. 4th Subway is at Walmart. 5th and final Subway is on Hwy 281. Starbucks is inside Target, replacing an older eatery. You could guess how long it took to remodel, but who cares?

@AmigaTech @HormonalHolly During Homecoming week one year, a local grocery store had a sign stating: No sales of eggs to anyone under 21. I kinda wished they kept the sign up after Homecoming week just to see them bitch about needing ID to buy eggs.

There is a Vacuum Cleaner store here in town that had a gorilla in front of it. Every now and then, they decorate it with stuff. But I haven't checked to see if they're still business or not.

I sometimes pay with a lot of change, but usually about $5-10. Few years ago, I went to a video store to pay with change, the cashier said that she had been needing some quarters. This was after I was renting a movie. Last night, the cashier in the liquor dept of a grocery store said he could not take that much change after 10pm. So I had to go across the store, who took that much change.

My mother would come over and ask if I had any alcohol in the fridge, which I don't. She doesn't have a drinking problem, but its something to get your mind off things.

There are Hello Kitty ones out there, but mostly in Japan I believe. From: http://forum.ebaumnation.com/showthread.php?22773-Spongebob-is-a-Tampon 1. Sponge=tampon 2. Spongebob lives in Bikini Bottom 3. Spongebob works at Krusty Krab whose owner has a sperm whale daughter named Pearl(necklace?) 4. Spongebob's neighbor Patrick Star sorta resembles an asshole. also Patrick happens to be dumb as shit 5. Squidward represents the moodiness and crankiness of PMS 6. Sandy Cheeks 7. Chumbucket rhymes with scum bucket...scum of course being an old used condom I'm still looking to see if this is a joke or not.

I bet they get asked, "Did you name your store after the music group?" Chances are, they were named after the medival toture device.

Stores here don't sell alcohol on Sunday and after midnight due to a city ordinance. But it might also be state law as well, not sure though.

@Hellbound, Kat, Chicajojobe You wonder why MUM.org exists. Rule 9 is stupidity as you might miss. The pool years ago had diving boards removed for some reason, but I had never heard of anyone jumping from the roof.
